Connecticut College COVID-19 Archive

Documenting the Camel Experience

Documenting COVID-19

This project presents reactions and responses of the Connecticut College community during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The College's fourth year, 1918-1919, was disrupted by outbreaks of both influenza and diphtheria. We know about that year through student diaries, photographs and newspapers in the College Archives. Now, as most of the Connecticut College community is away from campus, the Archives aims to collect and preserve evidence of this equally historic time through your contributions to this site.

Share your Story

The College Archives is seeking the experiences of Connecticut College students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and family during this time. While we regularly collect the official records of the College, we need your personal contributions to tell the full story of the COVID-19 crisis.

Please help by sharing your stories, photos, audio and video. What you contribute will help Camels and researchers, now and in the future, learn about this time in Conn's history. You have the option to keep your name private if you wish.
